Product Description

Thai Basil is a native of Southeast Asia and has smaller narrower leaves than its popular counterpart, it can also display purple colouring to the leaves and stems. It's most distinctive liquorice aroma and flavour makes it perfect for Thai and Asian cuisines. Try eating raw sprinkled over salads or as a substitute for sweet basil in your favourite dishes for a different flavour experience.

Serving Suggestion

Prawn Fritters - In a food processor, blend together 20 raw king prawns, 1 bunch of spring onions, chopped, 4 finely grated carrots, 1 finely grated kohlrabi, 1 small piece of galangal or ginger root, finely grated, 2 sprigs of fresh mint, a handful of fresh Thai basil, finely chopped, and -2 finely chopped chill, to a coarse texture. Scoop walnut-sized balls out of the mixture and coat each ball in the rice flour. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown, remove from the oil and drain before serving immediately.

Care Instructions
Growing herbs are 'cut as you need', harvest just above leaf growth to encourage the plant to re-grow.

Watering Instructions
Watering the herbs from the bottom is the key to keeping them healthy and to prolonging their life. Your herbs have always been watered from below so by keeping to this regime you will extend the life of the plant.
Remove the herb pots from their sleeves and place the pots in the tray. By placing water at the bottom of the tray you can always see how much water your plants have taken up. Generally water little and often and never keep your plant in standing water.

This is an Ocado product. Like everything in our range, it's good quality, sensibly priced and, of course, responsibly sourced.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Excellent addition to Thai cooking.

The plants were healthy, bushy & large for the price. Delivered in a protective cardboard box. Adds a wonderful flavour to Thai curries.

Thank you for your review. We work really hard to make our range a success and we're delighted that you enjoyed this product.

5 stars to Ocado just for stocking this!

Delighted that Ocado are stocking this herb again - even better that it's now fresh rather than in a jar. It has a liquorice flavour and once you've used in a Thai Red Curry, it's hard going back to using European Basil. The product comes in a box so was well-protected, and is quite small - glad I bought two. Would recommend getting the over-priced watering tray if you plan keep for more than a few days.
